Orbital ATK has received a $76 million order to produce and deliver an undisclosed number of .50 caliber ammunition to the U.S. Army.
The Army placed the order for small-caliber ammunition under a supply contract with Orbital ATK, the company said Wednesday
Jim Nichols, vice president and general manager of Orbital ATK’s small caliber systems division, said that company-made ammunition will support U.S. warfighters and allies.
The Army ordered $92 million in 5.56 millimeter and 7.62 mm small-caliber rounds from Orbital ATK in April.
Orbital ATK said it has produced more than 17 billion ammunition rounds at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri since 2000.
